Trade for the top-notch sheep was good with plenty of bidders for the best.  It was, however, a different story for the second and third quality sorts many of whom had clearly suffered from the drought conditions.

All, however, found their level and the sale was conducted at a brisk pace with selling done for 4pm.

There was no lack of buyers with 95 individual purchasers buying sheep, but with a shortage of grass and increased feed costs, it is hardly surprising that they adopted a cautious approach.

With rain forecast for the coming days it may be a different story for our next sale on 30th September.
